Redeemer's weekly newsletter

“My favourite thing about Redeemer is the quality of the teaching staff. Not only do they constantly perform at a high standard, they also ensure that each child's needs are met so no one falls behind. Each teacher brings something different to the school. I believe, that it is this variety of qualities that make Redeemer the school it is.”
- Taso S (Year 12)

Flexischools

Redeemer's Cashless Tuckshop System

Redeemer Lutheran College is always seeking to make your interactions with the college more convenient and secure and that’s why we engaged Flexischools (Australia’s leading school payment system) to provide a new cashless way to pay for some college services.

This system allows Junior School parents or students to place Online Orders for Tuckshop from home, work or school at any time via the internet and your mobile device. Senior School students use their Student Card to purchase items over the Tuckshop counter.

Junior School Student Online Tuckshop Ordering

Parents and Junior School students are able to order from the Tuckshop online up to 9.00am each morning.

The payment for this is also done online, so don't need to send cash or a paper order to the college.

As well as being convenient for parents, the online orders are more accurate and much faster for the Tuckshop to operate.

Orders are delivered to the Junior School each break. Prep students have the opportunity to order from the Tuckshop in Term 2.

Senior School Student Card Payments

Senior School students are able to use their student card to purchase food at the Tuckshop.

Parents simply set up a Flexischools account online and pre-load their account with funds.

Students then make purchases at the Tuckshop by swiping their card at the register.

Parents are able to view their students’ purchases online and can set a daily spending limit on the student’s card.

Do I have to stay all day?
No – you are not expected to stay all day. The busiest time is in the morning preparation. An hour or two even once a month would be very much appreciated.

Are Grandparents or others able to help?
Yes – we would love to see Grandparents, sisters, brothers etc.

What am I required to do?
There are many different things to do such as:
  • Preparing sandwiches and salad boxes
  • Sorting through Junior School order bags and packing them
  • Bagging hot food
  • Helping to make burgers, wraps and hot dogs
  • Serving at morning tea and lunch (all is self service)
  • Counting money
  • Labelling burger boxes and bags when required

Do I have to add up when serving?

No – cooking of the main meal for the day is generally done by the convenor.

Is lunch supplied?
Yes. You are able to eat anything you like free of charge.
